2/15 – 2. Human Family Tree

January-February 2015 / Poetry Gallery

Tim Merry

I’m tired

Of hearing how beings are wired

For self – destruction

The media barrage

Creating a collage

Of war

Environmental collapse by human cause

War on terror

The evening news documenting constant human error

Reporting the social fabric unwinding

Blinding

Us to our innate

State

Of being fine

I believe every human is divine

The gods we search and serve

Reside in us

And in this earth

There is no curse

Of Adam and Eve

We just lost our capacity to believe

In human dignity

And goodness

I am proud to be human

I believe now is our time to be choosin’

Clarity over confusion

What we feel over the illusion

Collectively movin’

To the next level of being together

There is no doubt of the changing weather

The only way we’ll make it is by being collectively clever

Across the intergenerational

National

Tribal

Racial

Spiritual

Financial

Fragmentation

Weaving together the pieces

Releases

The emerging new

From chaos comes order

From chaos comes order

From chaos comes order

Breaking down every border

This isn’t Gaia’s revenge

We’re on the mend

We’re the same people that built Stonehenge

Ancient places bring out the ancient parts of us

Ancient hearts in us

Ancient starts in us

Our Ancient goals

Ancient Souls

Do we have the self love to let go and evolve?

Do we have the self love to forgive ourselves?

Do we have the self love to release, unleash our souls?

Do we have the self love to surrender attachments for higher goals?

Cause my self love is my all love

Cause my self love is my all love

When I love myself I love all that is and ever will be

By loving myself I set myself free

I love me

I love we

To love fully

Demands letting go attachment to fear and limiting beliefs

Which only allow for brief

Relief

From the neurosis

Collective Prognosis

That we ain’t good enough

And don’t deserve to make it

That’s bullshit – I’m here to say no longer can we fake it

No more pretending we are weak

Spiritually meek

The planetary freak

It’s time for us to speak

From behind the mask

We shall rise

And surprise

Ourselves and each other

Put on our best clothes and come out from under cover

You lovers

Of yourselves and life

You Lovers of the god within

You lovers of original sin

You lovers of the living now garden of Eden

New Beginnin’

It ain’t about losin’ or winnin’

Just bein’
